We get the New York Times in three ways:

  • in print (the newspaper itself)' visit the library to read it; 
  • as part of our New York Times in Education susbcription, detailed below, and
  • in our Proquest Central database, described below.

New York in Education:

You can read unlimited numbers of articles on the New York Times website if you follow these steps:

  • Visit nytimes.com/passes
  • Click on register
  • Create a free account using college email address
  • Check your email and click on the link to confirm.

If you don't do the last step, you will only be able to read 10 articles before asking to subscribe.  When you have a confirmed account, there's no limit! Note that this confirmation is temporary; it last 24 hours. Just log in at nytimes.com/passes each time you want to read the Times. Bookmark the site to find it easily.

ProQuest Central:

We do get the New York Times online, through one of our databases, It won't look like the online free version, but the words are all there. If you want to browse the full-text of articles in the New York Times, here's how:

  • Click the General Databases link below.
  • Find and click on New York Times Current database, from ProQuest.
  • In the database, click Publications (top of page) > type in New York Times
  • Click the link to the one that says " Jun 1, 1980 - present."
  • To see articles from specific days, browse toward bottom of page and look for "Browse Specific Issues" > click on a date. Major articles for each day should be full-text.  
  • Otherwise, you can just search the database using subjects.

Yes, it's clunky. But it's free to our students, faculty and staff! Community users may visit the library to use the database.
